Still formulating an opinion. It was wrong. But I REALLY believe he conflated in his mind the events. I've done it, not just on the air.
An interesting article by Dr. Steven Novella on this incident: http://theness.com/neurologicablog/index.php/did-williams-lie/The short of it is that our memories are notoriously malleable, and our recollections of years-old events are almost always somewhat, shall we say, 'modified' from the actual truth.
